This is a very short hike to some interesting ruins and some rock art. Although it's so close to the highway it's rarely visited. Worth adding on to a longer hike on Comb Ridge if time allows.

To get there, drive 5 miles west of Bluff, close to Comb Ridge, and park at the Hobbs Wash Historical Marker. From there, cross the highway and walk south for a few minutes to the top of a steep cliff. Follow the right hand edge of the rim and then carefully make your way down a steep slope. Turn right and walk across the draw, past the base of another slickrock slope, to an alcove. The total hike is around 20 minutes.
